Shias say that Satan is a genuine a believer because he loves Ali immensely.
Ayatullats are afraid to tell their followers that Iblees is the greatest and highest ranking Ayatullat ever to walk on earth, and if they do, naturally people will abandon rafidism and search for truth. So they came up with a clever way to introduce love for Iblees in hearts of the rafidah.
That is why you will rarely find an ayatullat cursing Iblees (the one whom Allah cursed in the Qur'an) on minbars or in their cussing and abusing houses (husseiniyats). Instead you will find them curse the Sahaba and Sahabiyat (those who have been praised by Allah in the Qur'an) and other pious slaves of Allah.
